At a pioneering petroleum exploration and production company, GE conducted a successful upgrade of the Mark II controls to the Mark VIe integrated turbine and compressor controls—resulting in ensuring 99.5% power availability, up from an estimated 84% prior to the upgrade. The new advanced technology solution automated the control system for the gas turbine while improving performance and production. Overall, GE's Mark VIe reduced maintenance by 90% compared to the replaced systems.
